St. Marys Native Stephen E. Meyer Presents New Book, COMMONWELL

The Elk County Council on the Arts will host author Stephen Meyer, for a book signing event marking the release of his newest publication, COMMONWELL on Thursday, August 24, 5-8PM.

COMMONWELL is a new sci-fi novel set 800 years after Mars blacks out power on Earth. The Founders send back an operative, she discovers a small-scale civilization flourishes among the survivors, the Amish and Seneca. Everything the AIs told her was a lie.

Stephen E. Meyer was born and raised in St. Marys, PA, where he discovered a lifelong love of the outdoors-- hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing-- though he never has enjoyed sleeping in a tent. His novels COMMONWELL and SKATE are focused on traditional themes and overlooked places. He lives with his family in Philadelphia.

The public is welcome to attend the book signing event and Q&A. Books will be available for purchase at ECCOTA, the exclusive retailer in the Ridgway area.

The Elk County Council on the Arts Gallery is located at 237 Main Street, in downtown Ridgway.
